  8. A Message from Our Career Development Coordinator, John Evans:

 I am hoping to hold a financial literacy event for the seniors at CHS called the Reality of Money on December 5th 2019. The Reality of Money is a community outreach program created by SECU and offered to schools as a collaborative learning experience on financial literacy.  The Reality of Money activity gives students a “peek” into the future as they are “transformed” into adults with jobs, debt, families and other real world responsibilities.  During the simulation students move through multiple expense stations where volunteers assist them in making every day financial decision to make it to their next payday. This is an event that is hosted at many of the high schools around the state/county and has proven to be very impactful to the students.  I have attached an information sheet that gives more information on the Reality of Money simulation. 

We need volunteers to help us educate our students on the importance of making smart choices with their money.  If you have paid bills and/or managed a household budget you are more than qualified to volunteer for this activity.  I have created a Sign Up Genius to make it easy to sign up for the event. Feel free to pass this along to your neighbors and friends.   I hope you are able to help us out.
